Noodles & Company to Open Hudson Location in 2013

A local developer says he has signed a lease with Noodles & Company in a soon-to-be-built development at Carmichael Road and Center Drive. The shop is shooting for a spring or summer 2013 opening date.

Noodles & Company, a popular chain pasta eatery, has signed a lease in and is hoping to open for business in 2013, according to David Robson, a partner in the Ban Tara development firm.

"Noodles & Company is a done deal," Robson told Patch on Tuesday night. "They will open in late spring or early summer."

, and this is what the Woodbury Patch business listings directory has to say about it:

Noodles & Company is a fast casual style pasta, salad and soup restaurant with a cafe feel. The menu consists of variations of pasta and salad dishes including Asian, Italian and American versions. You are also able to custom build a pasta dish with several ingredients. 

Robson's development plans were approved by the city at the . The building will have space for up to five more tenants, and Robson is working on leases with other national chain businesses to fill the space.

The new building will look nearly the same as buildings that house other shops in the development, including , , , , , , ,  and more.

Why are we building yet another strip mall when we can't even fill up the ones we have?
Micheal Foley August 01, 2012 at 04:58 AM
Probably because the ones that were built are not in as optimal of a location. They want to be where the most vehicle traffic is, and in Hudson that's Carmichael & Crestview. Also, chain restaurants like shops built to their specification instead of trying to cram into an odd space.

Great more traffic on Carmichael just what we need! That's progress I guess. I imagine they will do very well here.

Does it really matter to us if the empty strip mall(s) stay that way? The owners are still paying property tax on the building, lessening the tax burden of the rest of us. They rolled the dice with their investment and obviously, it isn't paying off for them (yet). I say, keep building!

Wow....never happy. Here is a great restaurant chain coming into town and all ready there is frustration. There are various ways to get into that complex outside of Carmichael just as there are different ways to drive to get anywhere around town. I often avoid the Carmichael traffic. Find a different route if you don't like it. I for one welcome noodles to town. We need a better variety and for once it is something different.

EXACTLY my thoughts! what about that one sitting there for years by Aldi?
Micheal Foley August 01, 2012 at 01:59 PM
Molly: A Mexican restaurant called "Azul" is slated to go in at Aldi Plaza. They already have begun work on their space.

@Dirk, the value on vacant commercial property is much different than once it is filled. It's also an eye sore driving past empty storefronts every day. I do think they should build another strip mall because at this location it will fill quickly and might even lead to filling the other locations that are available to the south.

I'd love to see Panera come to town!

I am yearning for a Krispi Kreme Donut shop Please! I miss that so much since I came here. Also the Panera was a good suggestion. Hudson realloy needs a good up=scale restaurant, but not quite as expensive as Pier 500. And not as eclectic, just a good steak house, seafood place, etc.

Yay, my wish came true....I would love a Famous Daves here as well, not a good BBQ place in Hudson yet.
Sarah Edwards August 01, 2012 at 08:12 PM
@ Jennifer- Head across the river to Bayport BBQ- better than Famous Daves. Call for hours though-
Kris Janisch August 01, 2012 at 10:15 PM
Am I the only one who thinks Noodles and Co is overrated?
Tori Boomsma August 01, 2012 at 10:57 PM
Bayport BBQ is AWESOME! & owned by Hudson residents. Great music & even better food.
Carbon Bigfuut August 02, 2012 at 09:07 PM
Krispy Kreme has close most of their outlets in this area. For a reasonable substitute, go to Kwik Trip for their donuts.
Carbon Bigfuut August 02, 2012 at 09:09 PM
Famous Dave's is in Stillwater. Smalley's is there, too (downtown). And Sarah is right that Bayport BBQ is excellent!
Amanda K August 03, 2012 at 07:20 PM
I couldn't agree more! Panera would be perfect!
Renata Johnson August 04, 2012 at 08:24 PM
I am excited, I haven't had Noodles & Co. in over a decade=no location was convenient. Until now! Bring it on, buildings mean jobs :)
